Scan VIT® E. coli/Coliforms

Test kit for rapid analysis and absolute quantification of Escherichia coli and coliform bacteria


Item Number: 01280504

Quantitative detection of E.coli and coliform bacteria

With Scan VIT® E. coli/Coliforms you can reliably identify and absolutely quantify Escherichia coli and coliform bacteria. You will receive highly specific results with extra-ordinary rapidity. The quantitative analysis data will be submitted within 12 hours. Thus, you will quickly be certain of the occurence and quantity of bacteria regarding your analyzed sample. Bacteria of the genus Escherichia coli and coliform bacteria are reliably detected in one single analysis. With this test, all grown microcolonies are confirmed, not only an extract such as with classical methods.

The analysis is easy to conduct – only few minutes hands-on time. The results are provided within 3 hours. Analysis is performed by using a fluorescence microscope. All essential expandable materials required for analysis are contained in the kit. Package size: 100 analyses.

Analysis can be performed with following samples:

  • Drinking- and cooling water, tap water and bathing water (short pre-enrichment)


For identification only we also recommend our kit VIT® E.coli/Coliforms


Identical microscopic image after analysis with the test kit: rown microcolonies of coliform microcolonies shine red, E.coli specifically yellowish-orange.
Identical microscopic image after VIT® analysis: grown microcolonies of coliform microcolonies shine red; with a dualband filter E. coli microcolonies are visible specifically in yellowish-orange.
